Hay Festival

It is the most important literary festival in Europe that brings together great European and Latin American writers. Since its creation, the so-called Hay Festival that was born in the Welsh city of Hay on Wye, has become one of the most important literary and artistic events in the world, supported by the presence in its various editions of the greatest figures of the literary and thought creation - from Arthur Miller to Salman Rusdie, from Carlos Fuentes to Gabriel García Márquez -, or from the most diverse artistic tendencies - Sir Paul McCartney, Van Morrison, Bono - the leader of U2-, etc. For some time now, this "Woodstock de las Letras", as the former president of the United States, Bill Clinton, has called this festival in the 2001 year, has become itinerant in various cities throughout the world. Segovia has the privilege of being the Spanish headquarters of the HAY FESTIVAL since 2006, which makes it a few days in the European Capital of Thought.
